    Impeach Obama? Conservative kiosk gets booted from Concord Mills By Beth Shayne Newschannel 36 Posted: Wednesday, Jul. 22, 2009 CONCORD "Impeach Obama." "Al Qaeda's favorite days: 9/11/01 and 11/04/08." "Work Harder. Obama needs the money." The bumper stickers and posters sold at "Free Market Warrior" at Concord Mills are meant to be "biting," the kiosk's owner Loren Spivack said. At least one passerby found them racist and bigoted, and took time to tell the mall in a letter and a letter to the editor of the Charlotte Observer. Whatever your opinion, the fact is this: At the end of July,...

    CHICAGO - A public Christmas festival is no place for the Christmas story, the city says. Officials have asked organizers of a downtown Christmas festival, the German Christkindlmarket, to reconsider using a movie studio as a sponsor because it is worried ads for its film "The Nativity Story" might offend non-Christians. New Line Cinema, which said it was dropped, had planned to play a loop of the new film on televisions at the event. The decision had both the studio and a prominent Christian group shaking their heads. "The last time I checked, the first six letters of Christmas still...

    he Dublin Airport Authority has voiced regret after an ambulance waiting for a seriously injured patient was clamped by airport police. The privately-run ambulance was clamped on Saturday despite being parked in a section reserved for emergency crews. An airport spokeswoman said the incident was "deeply regrettable" and promised a policy review. Paramedics had to use a cash machine to pay for the clamp's removal. Their boss said the clamping was "mind-blowing". The airport said it would refund the clamping charge of 63 euros (£43; $82). Spokeswoman Siobhan Moore said police had clamped the ambulance because it had remained for...

    Ruling: Reno Can't Be Sued for Elian Raid Appeals Court Rules Former Attorney General Can't Be Sued by Elian Protesters MIAMI June 20 — Protesters and neighbors who alleged their constitutional rights were violated during the raid to seize Elian Gonzalez cannot sue former Attorney General Janet Reno, a federal appeals court ruled Thursday. The Atlanta-based panel reversed a lower court decision, stating Reno has immunity from damages because the 52 plaintiffs failed to show that she knew agents would violate their rights during the pre-dawn raid three years ago. Armed federal agents removed Elian, then 6, from his Cuban-American...
